A hypothetical scenario: You’re living your best life with your squad at Coachella, taking dope Insta selfies and showing all your followers how great you are at dancing like nobody’s watching, and your hippie-chic designer shades fall in the desert dust and get stomped on by a Chad in a neon tank top. You need new ones stat, or else you may lose out on some likes—and you can’t have that. What do you do? It’s a question we’ve all asked ourselves before…
No? Really? Well, maybe not you, specifically, but that must’ve happened to somebody, because Coachella has announced a new solution to that problem: The desert mega-festival will offer Amazon Lockers on the event grounds this year, allowing attendees to receive Amazon delivery packages during the fest. What a time to be alive, amirite?
Ahead of this year’s Coachella, set to take place over two weekends in April (4/12–4/14 and 4/19–4/21), Amazon will launch a dedicated Coachella Amazon Locker online storefront. Attendees will be able to order a wide range of items for delivery directly to the Lockers on the event grounds. Once the items are delivered, the customer will receive a bar code that they’ll use to grab their package from the specified locker. As Tech Crunch notes, this will mark the first time Amazon will set up temporary lockers outside of disaster relief efforts.
“We want customers to make the most out of their weekend at Coachella,” Patrick Supanc, Amazon Worldwide Director of Lockers and Pickup, explained in a statement about Amazon’s Coachella plans. “Bringing the convenience of Amazon Lockers to Coachella will help customers focus on their experience instead of worrying about forgetting something at home or having to carry it in with them.”
Good news for the festival’s patrons. Bad news for the enterprising dude selling odds and ends in the campgrounds.
